A triumph, before and after.....!

Just because I haven't been out of the house for a couple of days doesn't mean that there wasn't a lot of activity going on in my kitchen..Aimee, baker extraordinaire, was whipping up another fabulous creation, this time for my nephew and his wife who both turn 40 within days..I remember 40..just! I know there are quite a few 'foodies' out there that might like to have a little drool over this Black Forrest cake, this one's for you. I took this shot just before leaving home, I'll get back to you in a few hours with a look at the black cherry jam and chantilly cream (with a dash of Kirsch) oozing out between the layers.....
A few hours later and there wasn't much cake left, it was so good! If you fancy checking out the recipe you can see it on Aimee's blog Midnight Pie. Sorry I haven't been around much this weekend,
'mal de têtes' and computer screens are not good bedfellows, will catch up today. Thankfully it's a holiday in Australia today, another day to recover. Hope your week starts well, take care.....

  7. There are MANY calories staring back at me from this picture. Good for her. You left so you weren't tempted to eat any, right?

  14. Wow, that is one scrumptious looking cake! I do believe I am drooling just a bit. I just finished watching a special about the Queen called "The Diamond Queen" and they were showing quite a lot of scenes from her last visit to Perth. It was fun to watch and think to myself "I know that skyline" I see it everyday on the top of Grace's blog!

  18. I think that you're making me pay for my sins by having me look at this untouchable feast. And it looks sooooo good!

    Not a calorie in sight, either.

    Oh, I was just wondering if a bird in Perth lands on a tree branch, would you say it was perching in Perth? And I suppose a pastor, up in a pulpit, would be preaching, perched in Perth.

    OK, I'll quit now, as "gracefully" as I can.

  22. My...that looks delicious! Unfortunately, if I had even a small bite I'd feel as miserable as you with a migraine. Glad you're on the road to recovery, Grace.
